I can't build the accumulators docs because of some cryptic error from
quickbook's jamfile. (See below.) Oddly, I can build quickbook from the
tools/quickbook directory, and I can build other docs that depend on
quickbook (e.g., xpressive's docs).

I've narrowed it down to the uses of <dependency> in
accumulators/docs/Jamfile.v2, which has the following:

xml accumulators

accdoc, statsdoc and opdoc are doxygen targets. If I comment out those
dependencies, then the error goes away. Seems likely to be a bug in
quickbook's jamfile, but I don't really know.

Can anybody help?

Confirmed, but I don't see what in the accumulators/doc/Jamfile.v2 could
be causing this, and I'm serving jury duty so I don't have time to
investigate. Perhaps some kind bbv2 expert could take a glance?
